Abstract

In this early and influential queer cinema manifesto, Jack Smith sings the tributes of B-picture, “Queen of Technicolor” star Maria Montez, perhaps best known today for her role in Robert Siodmak’s The Cobra Woman (USA, 1944). Renowned for the seminal New York underground films Flaming Creatures (USA, 1962)—which is in many ways a tribute to the films of Montez—and Normal Love (USA, 1963), in this manifesto Smith celebrates the camp aesthetic of Montez’s films and acting. In the process he imagines a new queer cinema.
